Phytopythium Abad, de Cock, Bala, Robideau, A.M. Lodhi & Lévesque 2010
The genus Phytopythium contains around 15 species of plant pathogenic and soil-borne oomycetes. They are closely related to the genus Pythium and have been previously classified as Pythium clade K. However, they show some features of the genus Phytophthora. They have "papillate, internally proliferating sporangia and cylindrical or lobate antheridia". The genus contains several important plant disease agents, like Phytopythium helicoides and P. vexans.
